Here is the source I found: http://support.nagios.com/knowledgebase/faqs/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52&catid=35&faq_id=413&expand=false&showdesc=true

Actually need two backslashes and a second $. So service$name would be service\\$$name.

Micorsoft puts a $ in the SQL server services but your code truncates the service registry name after the $

check_command           check_nt!SERVICESTATE! -d SHOWALL -l MSSQL$HEMS

returns service not found MSSQL$

Is there any solution? I tried single quotes, double quotes, \ and back tick with same error
I even renamed the service without $ and still no go.(Not display name but registry name)
